problem, some help please guys!
Hello first post here! im having problems getting vdrift to work on my running vista ultimate and had to fix the SDL_gfx.dll error. now it starts but just dissapears automatically from my screen for some reason. Anyone got asolution tot his?


02-02-2008, 07:58 PM,
Welcome! It sounds like VDrift is crashing on you. I'm not sure if it would work on Vista, as that version was not tested on Vista much. We have a new version out now, but no Windows build for it, so to use it you would have to compile it yourself. It might fix several problems, however.

By the way, what kind of computer/video card do you have, and what drivers are you using for your video card?
02-28-2008, 02:53 PM,
i think i have the same problems, vdrift crashing on me.

i got these errors on stdout after it crashes,

Warning: option-47 is missing its default value. Assuming "".

and this also on stderr

maybe you could explain. for your info, i'm using ATI Radeon express 1100.

thanks before

Hi, and welcome. Smile

I'm afraid it looks as if your card won't work for VDrift. VDrift requires that your card has multitexturing capabilities, which it seems to lack. You can see this in the line
Ramdhan Wrote:Card does not support: ... multitexturing ...
VDrift is looking for the address of these functions with the calls to wglGetProcAddress that failed.

Sorry I don't have a solution for you. Sad Is this a built in card on a laptop or something? That makes it difficult or impossible to upgrade your card. Perhaps you have another machine you could run VDrift on?

FYI V-drift crashes on me too, Intel 915GM chipset (laptop). Shame, no v-drift for me?!
03-21-2008, 12:26 AM,
Unfortunately, although VDrift will run on any NVIDIA Geforce card from the 2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9 series (or equivalent ATI card), many built-in 3d cards (especially those from intel) generally don't have enough capabilities. :-(
05-06-2008, 06:48 AM,
I have ATI Radeon 9250 and VDrift not work on this card :cry: . Can you do something to VDrift work on this and other cards?
05-06-2008, 10:41 PM,
You could try turning off shaders. Open up your VDrift.config file and set shaders=off in the [display] section.
05-07-2008, 07:47 AM,
I find the VDrift.config file but i cannot find where is shaders [ main ]

Can someone help me? Sorry, i don't know where is Shaders :?
05-07-2008, 11:33 AM,
Just add the line shaders=off anywhere under the [display] section.
05-07-2008, 01:14 PM,
Ok i fix it but now SDL_gfx.dll missing. Maybe it isn't in install pack?
05-08-2008, 09:45 AM,
Can someone please upload on SDL_gfx.dl file before it's missing on install pack.
05-08-2008, 03:27 PM,
I think you're using a really old version, what package did you download? Try out the release candidate for Windows.
05-11-2008, 07:36 AM,
Yeah VDrift run, but id dissapears when i click Play... I download and install Relase Candidate for Windows and something wrong. Please HELP!
05-12-2008, 09:05 PM,
Delete the folder that contains the VDrift.config file, then try VDrift again. VDrift should recreate the folder. If the game still doesn't work, try setting shaders=off in the [display] section of your VDrift.config file.
